Homeowner’s insurance like other insurance costs are on the rise. There are several measures you can take to save money on your homeowner’s insurance. Here are just a few to consider:
Most insurance companies offer discounts by combining policies like your auto and homeowners coverage. Ask your insurance agent if they offer multiple policy discounts.
Upgrading your security system can sometimes lower your premium. Check with your agent before making the upgrades to make sure you can receive a discount.
Raise Your Deductible
By raising the deductible you will lower the cost of your policy. Make sure have enough in savings to cover the deductible should anything happen.
Tell your agent about any repairs you have made to the electrical, roof, and plumbing. Sometimes these improvements can get you a discount.
Check out other insurance companies but make sure the coverage is the same and that you are not losing coverage to save money. Once you’ve found a cheaper alternative, give your current provider the opportunity to match the price.
Some clubs offer special insurance discounts like AAA or AARP.
